's for fewer than katrina but still significant. because thousands of flood cars could end up on market and you'll know they're secret. in maryland, the law says dealers who sell more than 5 cars a year has to disclose flood damage. individual sellers don't have that same requirement. the feds use the national motor vehicle titling information system to track but he says not every state participates so scammers can wipe a car's past clean. but to uncover the imperfect past of a car takes some work. >> unfortunately it's extremely easy to clean up a flood damages car. >> reporter: his company's free flood reports may indicate whether a used car was water logged and could become a potential danger to you if you buy it. >> the worst this is it could affect the safety system of the car. the air bag system may not function. >> reporter: before buying any used car, you got to take it to a ride to a mechanic. bill taylor says the story of every sandy car can be uncovered if you look for red flags. to find the biggest one, just open the door and sniff. >> they can put perfume or cleans it all they wa
. this was the biggest one-week spike since september of 05 right after hurricane katrina slammed the gulf coast. gerri willis is with us. this jump, you could expect it. >> that's true. it's about the storm. people can file for unemployment claims if their employer closes their doors because of the storm. that's exactly what happened. we saw a lot of people file particularly in new york and new jersey. but even if you look at the moving averages which tends to back that out, you see the numbers moving, drifting higher. this jobs market is not recovered. not yet, not by a long shot. you can probably expect to see this weakness continue for two weeks. >> shep: that led to another -- it was a horrible day on wall street for a while, but recovered at the end. >> yesterday, 185 points down on the dow. today we ended up down 28 points. that's what's considered a good day on the markets right now. let me tell you, with that major problems, and if you look what the markets have done since the president took office, down 5%. the nasdaq, s & p, the dow, all of them. >> shep: it's his fault. obama's fault, right

almost never been recorded, is going to be in the tens of billions of dollars. it may rival katrina in terms of the need for recovery and infrastructure replacement as a result of that storm. fema has $12 billion in its account. if sequestration were to go through, the white house estimates that fema would lose about $878 million. at a time when fema emergency centers are being set up from rhode island all the way down to southern new jersey, these are centers where people who have lost their homes in some instances, lost their businesses, have lost equipment are now flooding into to try to get relief and help like any other natural disaster in the past. these are people who paid their taxes year in and year out and made sure that fema was there when the folks down in louisiana and mississippi were hit by katrina. fema is the agency which helps communities pay for police overtime, fire overtime, sanitation worker overtime. these are the folks that we always call on at times of emergency. yet sequestration, which this congress has failed to address, is now sitting out there really pu
